The Fossil Record Supports Creationism
Garry Trudeau states in his April 20, 2003 comic strip "Doonesbury (really, a leftist commentary" that President Bush, by not believing in evolution "has closed his mind to vast areas of human experience and knowledge."Read More
For years, we’ve maintained a list of arguments creationists should avoid. There are enough good arguments for biblical accuracy and a young earth that dubious claims can safely be discarded. Now we want to address a similar topic: arguments evolutionists should avoid. These worn-out tropes have not only passed their expiration date, but they never should have been made to begin with.
Argument 1: Evolution is a fact
When our core beliefs are attacked, it’s often easy for humans to retreat to statements such as this: “My belief is a fact, and yours is wrong.”
Introduction: Creationism and evolution have been in opposition ever since the latter’s introduction by Charles Darwin in 1858. Their conflicting views come as no surprise since creationism is derived from Christianity, while evolution is claimed to be derived from science. Christianity revolves around the concept of faith in Jesus Christ, and science revolves around the pursuit of evidence in nature. In light of today’s growing focus on science, it is essential to address the issue. Through this treatise, we hope to show that God is the true creator of all life on earth and that evolution is a biased and illogical explanation for the creation and sustaining of life.Read More

The first chapters of Genesis leave us in no doubt whatsoever about how God created the universe. On the six successive days of creation, God spoke and what He said happened. That is to say, the means that God used to create the universe and all things in it was His Word.

The occasions of his speaking, from Genesis chapter 1, verses 3–26 (NIV), are as follows:Read More
Not Ashamed, "Here I Stand"
by Ken Ham
The words attributed to Martin Luther almost 500 years ago--when he boldly stood on the authority of God's Word against the compromisers of the day--often echo in my mind: "Here I stand. I can do no other. God help me."
How we need God's people today to be like Luther. We need boldness to show that we are not ashamed of the gospel (Romans 1:16) and will handle the Word of God unashamedly. (II Timothy 2:15)
Sadly, as we have illustrated as many times in this newsletter over the years, the majority of theologians and church leaders (and most of the people of their congregations) will not stand on God's Word in Genesis.Read More
Or, is the earth only 2,191,000 days (6,000 years) old
In various previous articles I have discussed specific Geochronometers which scientifically show that our earth, solar system, galaxy and universe are young, perfectly consistent with 6,000 years. The reason that I have gone to such great lengths about this subject is simple. The question of age, great or small, is the key issue in the evolution-creation debate. If the earth were old, it would not make evolution true. It would only mean that there might have been enough time for evolution to have occurred. If the earth is young, then no theory of evolution could possibly be true.
The general public has accepted the great ages of the earth and universe espoused by evolutionists because they are poorly informed. The public school system, dominated as it is by secular humanists, has taught their religion and its tenets. The liberal press and equally liberal Hollywood has furthered their cause of secularism by uniting behind a great age for the earth and universe. Even Christian schools are no guarantee that a young earth position will be taught scientifically in their curriculum.Read More
